Tiago Alves de Sousa and Winemaker of the Year Awards

Tiago Alves de Sousa is awarded the National Winemaker Award Prize awarded unanimously by the Chancellery of the Honorary Order of Santa Maria de Ossónoba.

Main Types of Grapes that Grow at the Winery

The temperature, rainfall, and soils are perfect in the Douro region for vines’ growth and cultivation. The main types of grapes that grow here are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, and Tinta Roriz. The best grapes produce their unique red, white, rosé, dessert, and fortified wines. The new wine cellar at Alves de Sousa, located in the prestigious Quinta da Gaivosa combines tradition and modernity, having been awarded several Architecture and Wine Tourism awards, including the “Best of Wine Tourism 2017”. Their wines have a great taste and showcase the qualities of their gifted terroir.
